Various classes ranging from beginners to those who need to prepare for school entrance exams are available.

French Lessons are also offered to allow the students to be exposed to other languages. Students are taught the basic conversations through games and fun activities. The activities include singing, exercising and games.

School mission and philosophy:

Children of the next generation will be definitely required to take a more active part in the international community. It is important to have the necessary communication skills to interact with people around the world to fully participate in the international community, English is the universal language. Studying English during early childhood is effective, but that is not good enough to be globally accepted. Language skills are important, but they are not the only component. We believe that the most important thing is to understand the cultures and customs of various countries, organize one’s thoughts, and express them clearly. In partnership with parents, we would like to help their children develop the kindness and compassion.
